原文标题：India, China agree to hold joint military operations
BEIJING: Officials from India and China on Monday embarked on two days of negotiations with the goal of resuming joint military exercises this year and that signal increased trust levels between Beijing and New Delhi. Such exercises were stopped in 2009 over the issue of China issuing stapled visas to residents of Jammu and Kashmir.
"The two sides reviewed ongoing measures to ensure peace and tranquility on the Line of Actual Control (LAC) between the two countries, since this is a strategic understanding between the two governments," a statement by the Indian embassy in Beijing said after the meeting between officials of the two countries led by defence secretary Sashi Kant Sharma and General Xu Qiliang, vice chairman of China's central military commission.
"The two sides agreed upon a plan of bilateral military exchanges for 2013, including their next joint military exercise," it said, reporting on the 5th India-China Annual Defence Dialogue. They agreed to hold the next ADD in New Delhi at a convenient time.
During the talks, Xu said the two countries have enough wisdom and ability to handle their relationship and are able to pave a healthy and stable development path for it, the official Xinhua news agency said.
China wants to "promote the strategic partnership for peace and prosperity and make a positive contribution to world and regional peace and stability" it said.
Sharma said that consultations between the two sides should focus on commonalities which outweigh differes.

More than joint military operations, they should agree to prevent any skirmishes or incursions in the border so that it does not lead to tension.

This is the way to go! The two ancient civilizations and great powers must cooperate for mutual benefit and world peace. Of course there will always be jingoists and war-mongers who will cry for war at the first pretext, but I hope the government will not pay heed to these anti-national elements.

The areas for cooperation between India and China should be extended to other fields such as science and technology, trade and investment, agriculture and biodiversity, global climate change, poverty alleviation, HIV Aids, and cross border terrorism. If two countries work together, Asian economy would witness a great leap forward.

For both China and India, peace is very important for economic development and reduction of poverty. Obviously people in Pak think differently...they think getting Kashmir is more important than removal of poverty !!

China ,phillipines,Indonesia,Malaysia are far eastern countries and all of them have some problem with islamic fundamentalist. China being ally of Pakistan and considered as epicentre of terrorism activities have compelled china to look for balance of power with India. Besides India imports bulk of items from China which are much cheaper and both countries have become major trading partners. China with so much development of infrastructure has become a tourist attraction. With the granting of visa with ease many Indian tourist visit china mainland cities,hongkong, Makau etc .etc. Hence chinese leaders have realised that India is different and strong country and keep aside these border issues. They can not gain anything from Pakistan. They simply sell them weapons and god knows they may be utilised by themselves as their defence forces have islamic ideology and hidden agenda.
Confidence building measures such as this one between India and China is very important inspite of the fact that China is behind Maoist insurgency and incursion into Indian torritories in North and North -east. Distrust creates more tension, especially when India is going with US for joint petrolling in Indian Ocean and Asia Pacific region. This will allay lot of their fears that India is anti-China. However, as always India need to be vigilant about Chinese activities around the region and raise matter of any concern with them in appropriate forums. Dialogue and co-operation give both a chance to dispel any misunderstanding and move forward. However, this should not lead to complacency and ignore the immediate past. Strengthening Indian borders must continue unrelented, irrespective of such co-oprations.
